280SE fuel injector struggles...

Hello all,

I had a quick question for those of you that are more handy with a wrench than I am (which, I am guessing, is the vast majority of the people on this forum):

I have a 71 280SE m130 and I was wondering how you unscrew the pipes that connect to the engines fuel injectors? I have a 17mm wrench that fits but there's no clearance to twist the nuts that are holding the pipes in... Do I need a special tool? Am I just missing something obvious?

There should be a picture attached to explain more clearly where I'm referencing.

I would try a crows foot wrench. You will need to get one wrench on the injector and another on the pipe connector. Sometimes I just bend wrenches with a torch to fit.

no , as long as injector is tight in head , and does not spin around . a normal or bent wrench will do it .num 1 is the hardest .
